HEARTLAND : A PRAIRIE SAMPLER
Toronto : Tundra Books, 2002.
IL 3-6, RL 6.8
do you think about when you hear the word prairie? Do you think about
what the land looks like? Or perhaps what the people are like who
live there? Or maybe what the weather is like? Would you believe
that in Montana, it went from 44 degrees to -56 degrees in a single day?
That's a drop in about 100 degrees. But the weather isn't always
like that. Agriculture is big on the Prairie. Crops include
corn, wheat, oats, lentils, chickpeas and much more. The Prairies
are also full of holes! The holes are dug by animals. Find
out much more about life on the Prairie in Heartland : a Prairie Sampler.
